Before you speak … Think!
T – is s true?
H – is it helpful?
I – is it inspiring?
N – is it necessary?
K – is it kind?
Remember once we say what we say we cannot take it back. We can only seek forgiveness. The tongue is a powerful part of our body. It can also afflict the most damage. Check out these verses. The New King James has the word Tongue 150 times.
But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
You need to read the whole context in these two above verses in James 3:1-12.
Be careful little tongue what you say. The acronym is true, we must think before we speak out load. Make sure what we say is true, helpful, inspiring, necessary and kind. Make sure it is Biblically correct. Remember when we teach and share the Gospel we are held accountable for what we share or don’t share about the Gospel.
